I’ve planned well and saved. I’m a girl from welfare. I passed the NYS Regents Algebra & Trig courses. I became a Park Ave legal secretary. I know words. I can write. Numbers, directions, room measurements ….I have no clue anymore. Yes, I can budget and manage money. The basics.
Through the added blessing of my second husband, a financial whiz…I have insurance and planning to leave my family. Irony. The powdered egg, toothbrush roach kid. It makes me happy.
The younger ones will need it. I’m 57. By the time I’m 70, Social Security will be gone. They’ll need to start saving. I may live past 70.
